Allahabad School Sealed Over Banning The Recital Of National Anthem On Campus

The owner of a school in Allahabad who allegedly banned the recital of national anthem on the campus was arrested Monday even as authorities sealed his MA Convent School in Sadiyabad locality and ordered a magisterial inquiry to probe how it was allowed to run for two decades without due clearance.

Zia-ulHaq, manager of MA Convent School in Baghara locality, was booked under the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act and arrested, officials said. The FIR was filed by the education department after eight of the school’s teachers, including its principal, resigned last week alleging that they were denied permission to hold recital of the national anthem during the upcoming Independence Day celebrations. Haq had defended the move, claiming that the phrase ‘Bharat Bhagya Vidhata’ in the national anthem’s opening stanza violated the basic tenets of Islam. According to Haq, the school has around 200 Hindu and 150 Muslim students.

District administration sealed the school Monday as it running without due recognition from education department. “The education department has been requested to shift over 300 students enrolled there to some other school so that their studies do not suffer,” officiating District Magistrate of Allahabad AndraVamsi said.
